This was my first backpacking trip. I’m pretty conditioned so not too bad, but my hiking partner suffered as we hiked the entire trail to the lake on day one. If split up over three days, would be an enjoyable backpacking trip. No scenic views as a reward, just lots of forest cover and lovely water sounds. Ample water sources if you have fire/filter. I would just say that the start of this trail is not accurate based on the GPS map coordinates - see the website of the Oregon forest service to find he correct coordinates - adds about 2 miles each way.
